This was one of the first books I read when I started keeping a journal of the new children’s books I was reading. I guess it’s been awhile! Rhino was published back in 2012, but my notes reminded me what I loved about it.
The story is told in verse, and it’s good to the last rhyme!The plot? Rhino escapes from the zoo and hides out on a farm. There are no zookeepers so Rhino takes whatever he wants. His life is perfect, but it’s not so great for the other farm animals. They get blamed for every single thing Rhino takes. They decide to teach Rhino a lesson, and a few manners. This story is pure fun! I hope you check it out!
Whenever I read or write, I find a comfy chair with a great view. I get my favorite drink, stretch out, and let the words take me away.
